Abstract

A method based on laboratory cyclic triaxial and torsional tests of undisturbed soil samples has been developed to predict the potential for liquefaction due to buried charges, such as those used in construction blasting. The results of a test blasting program conducted at a construction site are presented. The case history yielded data on particle velocities and blast induced porewater pressure changes.

Potential for Liquefaction Due to Construction Blasting

St. Louis, Missouri

A method based on laboratory cyclic triaxial and torsional tests of undisturbed soil samples has been developed to predict the potential for liquefaction due to buried charges, such as those used in construction blasting. The results of a test blasting program conducted at a construction site are presented. The case history yielded data on particle velocities and blast induced porewater pressure changes.
